Linda Perkins and Wes Shorack are students in the LCC Construction Technology program.

In Eugene, Oregon, two Lane Community College construction students had an idea about 6 or 7 weeks ago: Why not learn our construction skills for the labor force – and help the community at the same time?

“Building tiny houses is the reason why I started to come to Lane,” Linda Perkins said.

“Me and my classmate Linda, both have a heart for helping the homeless,” said Wes Shorack. “There’s ideas for doing more of these, and we’d love to have this be the first one of many…”

The project got financial backing from St. John the Wonderworker Church in the Whiteaker neighborhood of Eugene.

When finished, the house will be moved by volunteers to the parking lot of that church.

LCC said a homeless man that goes by the name of Cowboy will be the recipient of the house.
